There is no denying that technology is a significant driving force in the rapidly changing world of property & casualty insurance.
- Consumer expectations – including your broker customers – for choice, self-service, quick response, on-demand, quality service continue to rise;
- Technology creates new risks – cyber, social liability, privacy, autonomous vehicles;
- Tools help address losses – drones, estimating tools, social tools for improved service;
- IoT and data help identify and better quantify and manage risks – flood, driving, breakdown, etc.
Might this be true for MGAs who serve niches and cover insurance needs for special risks? The threat of competition from traditional insurers, from new and existing peer MGAs and from new InsurTech entrants (many of whom look to technology for a competitive edge) is raising the bar.
Industry experts and thought leaders will address the issues, challenges and opportunities relating to the P&C MGA community, and look at technology both as a tool to give you a competitive edge and as an external threat & risk opportunity.
